Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden

Our juniors went on an exciting visit to the beautiful Queen Sirikit Botanical Garden on Sunday the 25th of November with A. Milena and A. Cara.

Here, they explored the Flying Draco Trail, the longest canopy walkway in Thailand. It is named after Draco Maculatus divergens, a type of flying lizard that can only be found on the Suthep Mountain in Chiang Mai.

A highlight is the Glasshouse Complex of four conservatories where you can see plants from all over the world including orchids, lotus flowers, medicinal herbs and more. The children found the arid plants from Australia and Africa the most interesting including a very spiny cactus found in the desert.

After exploring the grounds for a few hours and sitting by the lake and fountain, the children enjoyed relaxing in the cafe with ice cream and cold drinks to escape the heat.
